Most Optimistic Songs Ever

Wonderful

The Top Ten

1 To Believe - Jackie Evancho

If only it could come true.
There are those who would do anything to keep it from becoming true. Maybe one day their evil will be overcome.

"To Believe in a Day,
When hunger and war are passed away."
A young girl's optimistic hope for a better future world.

5 Stronger - Kelly Clarkson
6 Beautiful - Christina Aguilera
7 I Will Survive - Gloria Gaynor
8 The Show Must Go On - Queen

10 Imaginer - Jackie Evancho

In 2011, Lara Fabian re-wrote the lyrics to her and Walter Afanasieff's song "Broken Vow" especially for Jackie Evancho. It was included on her David Foster-produced album "Dream With Me". The meaning of "Broken Vow", about a sad love, is completely changed in "Imaginer", which describes a dream of a peaceful world. Part of the lyrics translate as follows: "Imagine a world as pure as the sun, / Where war is only a memory. / Imagine a world without hunger".

This song can also be found on the DVD "Dream With Me in Concert" and on the YouTube video of Jackie's performance at Yara's wedding ("The Wedding of the Century"). - BobG
